Personalization at Scale

Make personalized experiences a part of every moment.

Customers don’t just want products. They want personalized experiences. They want real human engagement. We know it’s not always easy to make every connection personal, but we have the experience to help you succeed.

Today, connected and personalized experiences are a must.

Nearly everything we do is now managed online. And those digital experiences need to be connected and tailored to your preferences, whether it’s finding the right color of laces for your custom-designed shoes or brake pads for your delivery van fleet.

Businesses that understand personalization are the ones growing at an accelerated rate by creating engaging human connections.

Personalization at scale is challenging, and we’ll help you figure it out.

Creating unique experiences for large audiences isn’t easy. Implementing personalization at scale is complex, involving transformation of your data, content, teams, and technology. But the effort is necessary, given 80% of B2C customers and 84% of B2B customers feel that personalization saves them time by making it easier to find information and settle decisions.*

Having worked with thousands of brands, we’ve identified the building blocks you need to reimagine more personal, human, and connected experiences for customers. These blocks are a brand’s data and insights, content and collaboration, and customer journeys.

Use these building blocks to deliver personalized experiences.

As you consider which of the following blocks to focus on, we understand every business is at a different stage. Whether you’re far along or just beginning your personalization journey, start where it makes sense and remember that you’re looking to create human connections.

DATA & INSIGHTS

1. Make data central to your personalization strategy.

Combining cutting edge data, AI-powered insights, and profile technology is essential to understanding and curating the experience of any customer, at any stage in their relationship with your business. Build your personalization data foundation on these principles.

Designate a single repository for asset management, governance, and distribution among your content creators and publishers.
 

Enable dynamic content creation and delivery
